I needed to convert fat32 to ntfs to install starcraft 2 for my son. I was told this was the best thing to do because it was a big program. It would stop after 2 gigs telling me I was out of space even though I wasn't. So I did it. I did the convert C: /fs:ntfs

After it was done it rebooted..and has been rebooting ever since. It goes through all the boot up sequence and I see the splash of windows starting then a very very fast blue screen that goes by so quick I can't read it and it reboots. It continues this cycle nonstop.

Please help.

You followed the above directions?

System manufacturer and model?

Do you have a MS XP install CD?

Oops..sorry. Yes, I do have an xp install CD. Tried R for repair..but it puts me into the recovery console and wants me to type exit to get out. Doesn't do anything.

Good, thanks :thumbsup:.

Go back into the Recovery Console.

When asked which Windows install...type 1 and hit Enter.

On the password prompt, just hit Enter.

At the next line...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter.

If you cannot do either of these steps, let us know.

Louis
